the same everywhere, do aly everywhere, very rapidly, i mentioned egypt is growing, china is growing, india is growing, india is an interesting case as well. win india became independent in 1490 -- 48, in 48, india chose the economic model which was extremely popular at that time, closed border state controlling the industry, you couldn't start a new business, even a small business without the state authorization, and this was supposed to bring india out of poverty. between 1991, was 1%. this was so predictable, so constant, so regular, that economists in india called that the into rate of growth, as if 1% was rted in the indian or hindu culture. in 1991, the finance minister decided to open the border to welcome foreign investments to a certain extent, to the license system, and india is growing 5%, 6%, 7% according to the year. i mentioned in the a because it is less known, what happened in china, i will not elaborate. one of the miracles which is not a miracle,ust an application of sound principle and good economic policy, shows that the cost share, religion, civilization is not a key fa
him about 18 days to make the passage from lasa to india, and during that time, president eisenhower received radio reports from the c.i.a. director, every other day. charting the progress of the tibetans, the c.i.a. had managed to train and put in place some agents, who could accompany the dalai lama on a very hazardous journey through the mountains, and eisenhower was in almost realtime getting information about what was happening. thanks to geshae. geshae was brought down to washington to a safe house in georgetown to translate the radio reports coming out of tibet about the dalai lama and his movement. once he was safely out, a full fledged guerrilla operation began. i think the tibetan national uprising in which some 85,000 tibetans lost their lives, was probably the high watermark of that resistance. many of the weapons that had been flown into tibet and parachuted down to the himalayas came as a result of the american support operation. the dalai lama himself never personally sanctioned this violence. in fact, he was very dubious and for a long time, the united states is the c
blake and i were in india recently and the indians are a major factor in the region. they're the dominant power. improveb -- improving u.s.-indian relations ha been a continual goal of the last three u.s.strations, all which i think have been successful in that regard, starting with president clinton's trip in 2000. i will keep the indians fully informed and i have an indian counterpart who i keep fully informed in india. >> ok. going to open it up. [unaudible question] >> i'm not going to stand so i don't block the cameras. >> please identify yourself. >> martha raddatz from abc news. ambassador holebook i know you want to talk about the civilian side of this. >> but you don't? >> but the security is so intergind. tell me how that is affecting what you're trying to do, what kind of a hindrance that is, what hads to happen in order for you to succeed and as part of that i want to sigh that a lot of people i talk to, civilians in afghanistan complain that they really can't go outside the wire in certain areas because of the security. >> you mean the americans? >> yes. >> le
of the europeans and particularly in conquered india, as the prime concern. we can easily think of m blocks today. hits observation in fact is one of the few solid and enduring principles of international and domestic affairs. well to keep in mind. at the food crisis is a case in point. it erupted first and most dramatically in haiti in the early 2008, and like bangladesh, haiti is a symbol of the utter misery. like bangladesh, when the european explorers arrived, they said they were stunned because it was so remarkably rich in resources. later it became the source of much of france's wealth. i am not going to run through this sordid history but the current food crisis traces back directly to woodrow wilson's invasion of haiti, which was murderous and brutal and destructive. among wilson's many crimes was to dissolve the haitian parliament at gunpoint, because if refused to pass what was called progressive legislation which would allow u.s. businesses to take over haitian lance. wilson marines then ran a free election in which the legislation was passed by 99.9% of the vote. that is of the 5% of
and i have proof of this. four or five weeks ago i was in india for the first time. very excited. very early in the morning about to visit the taj mahal and picked up the paper as i was going into breakfast and there was a picture of gabriel marquez whoever ran the newspaper new it was a face that readers would recognize. he was very well known in india and the story rather marquez would ride together. to be put on the front page in terms whether he would write again and the same would happen if you ask in india or turkey, they might or might not know but they do know those people who read. which is why i have asserted high maybe wrong, but he is perhaps the world's first global novelists. 100 years of solitude which he published in 1967 was the world's first global novel that would make sense because it makes the transition from what we call traditional society mainly preliterate society from technology society that most countries are. one of the things i discovered >> it appears in the headlines and latin american newspapers and they know what is peacock. >> one of the things that st
happens. [laughter] >> that will definitely have an impact. >> talk about rising competition from india and vietnam and parts of southeast asia, there are now planeloads of american executives arriving americans on the ground as they do not come. it is too expensive already pregnant inflation in vietnam is already 16%. and wages are rising very quickly not to mention that in fee and all the whole population and is smaller and on the much smaller scale. besides a lack of enforcement at this is a huge advantage. we're in an interesting and transitioned that we have the cluster is built up on the coast and now the world is looking for a place to bill lacklustre is where it is cheaper and become more efficient and you take any industry i think of bra industry is in crisis. she is wringing her hands and she does not aware she can source of bra. it is not for attribution but it is interesting to see where they will end up. will they end up in india or vietnam? might experience is it is not that much cheaper to go inland but logistics' are a much larger percentage of cost rages are not as chea
, whether that's new or not, india or pakistan possess nuclear weapons. >> right. >> and as it stands, those are just accepted responsible nations, so-called responsible nations. and then we saw pakistan and india go to war just a few years ago. threatening each other and they were told not to. is it a wise policy now to allow iran, knowing that -- >> to allow -- >> allow iran or to allow po persist or to go ahead with the nuclear armament? knowing that iraq and iran fought each other with the chemical weapons and how iran is threatening other countries in the middle east? and the religious fundamentalists are threatening each other. and now they're trying to contain that but from what i get from yours, it's all a superpower ideology, of course, that is true during the cold war. >> so let me try and answer your question about iranian -- the iranian effort to acquire nuclear weapons assuming that is what they are trying to do. i think we have to look at this in terms of two issues. one is the issue of nuclear proliferation generally and this relates to the faithlessness of the existing nuclea
sence and international competitiveness. it's a rearview mirror argument. china and india are cominup fast, we are aad of them, but our gas is running out and they have a rocket engineá we're not always going to be the world leaders in science. there's definitely a lot of data to support that concern. the answer is let's keyuate more scientists. and you heard that aot but less heard is this incredible fact. we're not creating opportunities at home for our talent either. only 7% of age 35 and under can expect to get tenture track facility positions. the rest need to take their scientific skills into history or into teaching, media if there's any positions left, somethg else. something where they can actually given their knowledge and backgrounds they can do a lot thelp connect science with the rest of society. so our argument in the book is coul't we kill two birds with one stone, couldn't we create new vows in what's cled the science pipeline for the young sciences who want to become a group of experts in outreach to the rest of america. coulde create jobs for theto do s nonprofit jo
india. we learned from democrat senator claire mccaskill that, quote, if we go too far with this, that is cap and trade, then all we are going to do is chase more jobs to china and india where they've been putting up coal-fired plants every 10 minutes. in sum, we have a slew of hearings in three unsuccessful votes on the senate floor. actually i'd say four because we rejected the kyoto treaty in the beginning. the democrats taught us that cap and trade is a great big tax and will raise electricity prices on consumers i would have to say in a regressive way, send jobs to china and india all without any impact on global temperature, so off we go into the august recess secure in the knowledge that cap and trade is riddled with flaws and that democrats are seriously divided over one of president obama's top domestic policy priorities. and we also know that according to a recent polling the american public is increasingly unwilling to pay anything, as the polling has shown, to fight global warming. but all this does not mean cap and trade is dead and gone. it's very much alive as demo
'd bng in ladies shoes from india at $5 you'd add a dollar on for the insurance and freight and you'd sell them by the container loads on duane street in new york city and your income statement would be $150,000 in revenue. your cost of goods sold would be 130, your gross profit would be 20 and your fixed profit would be 12 and you would make $8,000 before tax and that was my business model. and that comme by that child in 1982 has been what i've been thinking about almost nonstop for the last 27 years. how do you teach capitalism? how do you teach ownership? how do you teach people to control financial assets, their time and their thoughts. people who have been excluded from the system. people that have not been given a chance to participate in markets and in capitalism and instead many times have had markets used against them by accident. that's what i've been thinking about, for the '80s, for the next 7 1/2 years i rotated around it. i went to very difficult schools. i worked on one thing over and over again to develop a course, to develop a teaching methodology and lesson plans
to call this glass new. it goes back to the origins of world trade to the east india company and hudson bay company. there is nothing particularly new to be a fruitless soldier and diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman for decades ibm employees have said the initial stand for i have been moved. what is new, the relos themselves, the breadwinners -- i will start -- what is new is growth in numbers of corporate relos, a figure i estimate to be about 10 million people, that is the breadwinners themselves and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade to cite a statistical the goods and services we buy and sell abroad has leaped from about $400 million in 1970 to over 3 trillion now as companies american and foreign compete. they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you've not heard the word reloville because i made it up. it is about workers and families frequently relocating, they are see real long-distance movers. the word relos originated among agents who specialize in catering to them. relo
and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic to filament in a period of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a safe prosperous and free future we need to create the most productive most creative most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear. i believe if you set out and say well what maximize their are ways to do that. you said what maximize the number of small businesses created by small business there are ways to do that. if you said how can i have the most continuous process of innovation we know how to it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future which is high techs, bigger shocker c and politicians entered. so, long term we're going to need budgetary reform legislation. it's interesting the last congress more than a dozen bills introduced to establish entitlement and budget commission's but if all the legislation did was have the same old conversation within the same old frame work you in fact wouldn't achieve very much. you end up with a com
or india or iraq or indonesia where they end up and things have soared sort of hidden values. religion fascinates me so you get the southeast asian religious figures of course, but it tells us to behave ourselves, a little stream, put it around your neck. it is a begging bowl from afghanistan picked up in a bizarre. the work is very fine if you look and the thing is you don't want to publish something like this. let the dirt of the sentry on it. my brother gave me these for christmas because we had some when we were children and it's just a reminder of when we were kids. they are called britain's, these little soldiers. but the most important thing in this room by far even more important than the books, pictures of my wife. they are all over the house. when i write, my goal is not to disappoint my wife, not to dismay her. it doesn't mean i want to make her angry. we want to disagree on things but my test is have i written sufficiently honest with enough integrity to pass the kathryn mcintyre peters test and i have another test at penn state as an undergrad back in the 60's, 70's when i
is the most cluttered room in the house i tend to be a little more austere but from pakistan or india or an iraq or indonesia weird you end up? but they do have some hidden values religion fascinates me but the southeast asia and religion figure of buddha telling us to be gave ourselves put strings around it is a begging bowl from afghanistan. the work is a very fine and if you look you do not want to polish to something like this. my mother gave me these because we're a little when we were children we had some. it is a reminder of when we were kids. they are called britons, these little mental soldiers. but the most important thing in this room, by far, even more important than books, pictures of my wife. they are all over the house. she is slavic but when i write, my goal is not to disappoint not to dismay i do not want to make per angry but my test really is and i have written a sufficiently honestly with enough integrity to pass the catherine mcintyre peters test roi also have another test at penn state as the underground -- undergrad in the late '60s when it was voted number one
they voted 44% for bush. how we get the latinos, blacks, asians, india ns, to come over? most of them have conservative values. >> california as tragic as the condition of our state today virtually bankrupt issuing ious this week with a governor does not know he is a republic 10, we have in recent months of passage of proposition a comment the issue to secure the marriage be between one man and one woman and who helped us pass that? of the latino and black community came forward. we need to pick the right issues and carry the right banner to offer to the people something they can relate to. so it believes in family values those are republican values and conservative values that we need to enunciate and welcome them aboard. reagan has plenty of hispanics approaching for them so did george bush the first and florida -- the first four rounds so it is not a matter of the demographics as much as watery offering to the people? >> obama's said he wants to legalize a net large number of illegal aliens there is 12 million even with 1 billion wouldn't that be very decisive in a national election and
and i have trouble bringing in my workers from india or pakistan or singapore or britain? would it be a lot easier for me to move the job to the worker overseas and bring the workers to the job here? >> i had a conversation about three weeks ago with a google executive who is responsible for these decisions, director of global hiring. he says we hire and we locate our facilities wherever we can bring in the till to people we need. he said that at this point they think they basically interviewed everyone in the state of california. google searches the entire country and the entire world to find the best people and he said because it's hard to get the people in the u.s., we will locate in hong kong or singapore or europe and we're seeing microsoft for the first and has moved a research and development facility outside into vancouver because it's easier for them to get the people that want in canada. that is what companies will do. they can get them here they will go elsewhere. >> jackie, does it make sense to say that the mexican people are the ones that suffered the most of 9/11?
opportunities young people have in india and brazil and all these other countries that develop mentally 30 years ago were on a par with the countries they are in now. but they know in the arab world that they have slipped farther and farther behind. so the desire to join the rest of the world, be part of this global trend, i think is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there is one here and in one in the back. >> i am from east africa. i originally am from somebody. i want to share a grievance, from the last two months which gives me some kind of glimpse of hope in the region now we are talking about. what was the launch for the center and training for human rights in doha are. we had commissioner just launch it. and it was a ceremony which i attend. i found activist, and i hope, i say this, for the future. activists from doha are, from kuwait, there was none at all, women began, and some of them come in and speaking of freely because it largely focus on democracy. someone training. but highlighting, pointing out the difficulty and now we're talking about t
's partnership with history which has managed to india the corporate culture even today. unfortunately, although some people would disagree, i think regulators need to get more involved. and having a system whereby a group of bankers is essentially free to develop as fast as they went to the degree that they want with very little external oversight, journalists and regulators and politicians and somehow hope that they will, through sheer goodness of spirit and collective rationality, will keep their activities in check and not go mad, is naive. baking is too important to be left to bankers alone. if the people who run nuclear power plants were paid kilowatt of energy they pump out, so you have to pump out as much as they can and the more they pump out, the more successful they look, it would be over by now. we need to look in banking to other kinds of activity and ask what lessons we can learn about risk control. one of the ironies that everyone talks about, financial engineering, if you are actually an engineer building bridges, you talk about things like safety margins, risk, your talk to deba
they are being replaced by mathematicians from korea, india, china. i teach at usc down the road, and the engineering school and theath and the biological science as well are very heavily asian and asian-american so that like many things in america, we have outsourced maffei learning and we know the people on wall street can't -- [laughter] >> robert a piece of the question was living people versus dead people for lack of a better word. any thoughts on that? >> [inaudible] -- amazing files, chronological material [inaudible] >> welcome the answer is definitely yes. i mean, if you have a story that is exciting to write, i think you should begin to imagine dramatizing it if it's that kind of thing. and it doesn't have to be a competition or categorical choice. you can all go down one road. i think that any story that has human themes that are powerful and moving can be dramatized. i think to dramatize rutherford's life i don't know. i would have to read richard's book. i know that with the wittman's, they live in modest homes in brooklyn, they were a family of carpenters, the fathe
the economy, reduce the number of jobs, weaken the businesses, guarantee that china and india will outcompete us in of the world market and the only alternative to that is real change. you're not going to be able to get cleverly from here to a better future, as long as the system, whether it's at the state level or the federal level is dominated by structures of special interest, whose entire future is a function of bigger bureaucracies, more spending and higher taxes, so i hope i've at least made 18 nibble case that what we need is a dramatic level of change. what i would like to do is take a five minute break and come back for c-span, but i appreciate you giving us this much time to outline the initials, and then we'll start with questions right after the break. [applause] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> our liver coverage of this forum on the government budget process will continue in a moment. former house speaker newt gingrich will take questions from the audience an we'll continue our live coverage in just a moment. in the meantime, here's a conversation about the
by the inhabit tants of countries as far flown as nigeria, egypt, mesopotamia, turkey, india, china, greece, united kingdom, north america, south america including the greenland eskis. in fact, the two vernacular words that survid in plato's description of atlantis were found to be in sound and meaning -- were found in sound and me meang to have been directly derived from the language environment. so too were 90% of words used by adam andis household especially names of people and places. and there are many. our research includes the origin and meanings of symbols used in every religion and sacd literature all over the world. in these we found that hebrew bible, the kabbalah of the hebrews and the chinese, the hindus and the recently discovered egyptian christian bible was of immense importance in revealing lost knowledge. wherever we looked we found evidence confirming the claims by geneticsists that all mankind came from sub-harrah africa. and it was previously believed that adam and eve were descended from east african lucy. our findings revealed it was not east african but a nigeria are
, one hears that the russians have been selling more advanced weapons to india, they have also sold some advanced weapons to malaysia and i understand indonesia. they have, obviously, a deep oblem with japan because of the northern territories, but nevertheless, if the rusans were to see their relationship with china as in some respects inhibited, aren't the assets avaible to the russians to, if you like, increase their livery somewhat? >> well, the russians have been trying to exercise those. they understand that, and so, for example, the arms relationship was always something that implicitly if the tensions became worse, the russians could do what the united states did after tiananmen which was cut that off. but now the chise can develop a lot of this stuff indigenously, so that leverages decline. the oil and gas we discussed, it's something that russia's been trying to use to, say, threaten or not threaten but really just bargain off china and japan and other countries to get them to pay higher prices, and the chinese for a while, you know, pretty much stood on their terms. now the ru
and demonstrations of around india against the united states. bald was the reason? was their something, that found some kind of underground connections or why -- he was in the u.s. dozens of times in the past and there was no problem at all. >> i actually think that the ambassador, our ambassador to india put out a statement on this case. beyond that i think i will defer to the department of homeland security. >> are you a thinking [inaudible] harassment, he feels since he was coming round the usa [inaudible] >> i am not equipped to comment on the case at this point. >> this has gone back to an older issue but it is again a new u.s. ambassador is starting in london and the mayor of london's office as well as members of the london assembly are calling for the u.s. to reevaluate its policy on congestion fees for the city and what the united states to pay 3.5 million pounds of fees' they say the united states owes. >> is there any change of policy coming or would you consider changing policy based on new ambassador? >> our policy does not change with the change of ambassador. >> what is the policy? >
, of the scope of atrocities that were going on india down. the other thing that you, after john kerry gave his testimony to the senate in 1971, remember, vietnam veterans against the war. after his testimony, the nixon administration, we now know, worked closely with another veterans group that eventually came the veterans, that's kind of the ring, the senate, that worked closely with them to put out a different story to the public. that these guys were liars and fabricators, and in fact, the army records don't show that they were liars. >> thank you. >> incidentally, you mentioned john kerry, you know as probably most of you recall in 2004, he was attacked by the swift boaters when he was running for president for his testimony in 1971, war crimes were a common occurrence in the non. and it was an effective attack that helped defeat him. but one of the people, one of the officers was part of a small group that collected these records in the pentagon is now a retired general, and a vocal opponent to the iraq war. in 2040 contacted the kerry campaign three times. he wanted to tell them that the
-- can you start a company in china today? increasingly you can. a company in india and america better wake up to that fact. they better wake up to the fact that other systems that regulate more, that pay for education and have more efficient healthcare systems are going to start becoming much more competitive economically than we are and we better start taking care of ourselves. and i'm not going to become an idealog. i'm not going to tell you people and i'm certainly not tell the jury or i'm not going to tell this woman who keeps laughing, that the only answer, the only answer -- i always remember this line from sinatra. sir, take your hand off that broad. [laughter] >> we're in las vegas. i can say that. >> what happens here stays here. [laughter] >> we'd better take care of ourselves and i'm not going to become an idealog or use lebron james as an example or ethiopia or tell you fannie mae did it all or distort the numbers or tell you everything is bad about private enterprise. not remotely. i'm going to tell you we better get some balance in america and we've lost that. we've lost
energy independence. >> guest: the united states could develop not just ourselves but for china, india, europe and japan if we could develop a hydrogen economy and we could return petroleum to been primarily a petrochemical feedstock for plastics unit overnight change the balance of power and you would have an enormous shift away from men as well, saudi arabia, iran, iraq, russia and that would be much healthier for the world at large. >> host: this next caller has a question about energy virginia. >> caller: mr. speaker, i have a comment and question and you just partially answered it. seems to me that high standards of living are directly related to our energy consumption and the question is, how do we achieve achieve energy along with conservation and at the same time finding new energy sources? >> guest: q2 simultaneously for things. first you go and strengthen subsidize renewals, solar, wind, and biofuels because all those are available. second, you work on conservation including composite material. ups has a new then there are expementing with that is a composite material rather
beginning to india by in a huge fan but he has done but there's differently and incident their facebook needed to deal with and that is part of the story. by the way this is secret. this is by the way we don't have a book right now or i don't have a book right now because the stories have never been told before and it is amazing to have gotten access. >> host: and there's another public official in the book, larry summers. >> guest: larry summers was president of harvard when this went down. so the twins when they decided they had been stolen from, their idea was stolen, they believe strongly in justice and hierarchy because the hierarchy served them well. they are members of the olympic team could be leaders in the american system said they decided the president of harvard should make this decision who came up with facebook so they used all connections and got an audience with the president, larry summers and brought in well-documented piece of paper and handed it to larry summers and said you need to do something about mark zuckerman and he held a piece of paper like it was a piece of
the whole thing when he was a soldier in india. but you can read condensed versions which a actually pretty good. gibbon is very wrong about religion. but he's very right about a lot of things, too. and it's just splendid, splendid reading. edmond burke, reflections on the revolution of france. i know everyone likes to put this book on their list but i hope a of you have read it and absorbed it. and if you haven't i encourage you to do so. the first time i came to washinon and started interacting with my fellow conservatives, i thought they must not have read this book. i remember going to a party that was thrown by someone who's quite famousight now, and he was a celebration of the french revolution party because to him this was a great blowor libertarian and democracy and all this sort of thing. i thought you've got to be kidding me. i thought it was crazy then and i still think it was crazy now. the premiums hat areital crucial and true are things that i think rub a lot of people in a knee-jerk way the wrong way. weave the famous line -- the age of chivalry isgone, that of economists and

overprotects. now there are two countries that have been very important if resisting this. one is india and the other is brazil. and both of these countries have facilitated a developing -- a development agenda at world intellectual property organization and that developed agenda is beginning to rebalance tease issues, -- these issues, by reminding wipo that it's a u.n. organization, not a committee set up by hollywood and wipo is beginning to understand it has wider interests to consider, than just what the copyright interests will say. so there's some potential for progress, but as long as the u.s. trade representative thinks that his job or her job is to represent one slice of the american economy to its maximum defense, i think we're going to continue to do harm internationally. >> you are now teaching at stanford university. and that's the center for producing the next generation for silicon valley. what do the students, or what do the recent graduates who are now in silicon valley, how do they feel about this and are they trying to find ways to implement what you are suggesting? >
it goes back to the origins of world trade, as far back as the east india company and hudson bay company, nothing particularly new to being a diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman. for decades, ibm employees have said the initials stand for i have been moved. what is new? the growth of the numbers of corporate freeloaders. the breadwinners, i will start -- what is new is the growth in the numbers of corporate relos, a number i estimate to be ten million people. the breadwinners and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade, to cite a statistic, all the goods and services that we buy and sell abroad, from $400 billion in 1970 to over $3 trillion now. as companies, american and foreign, they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you have not heard the word relosville because i made it up. they are cereal long-distance movers. the word relos probably a originated among suburban real estate agents who specify in catering to them. relos tend to reduce the tween moves in relovilles, suburbs caterin

. furthermore when you're faced with competitors like china and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic development in and time of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a system of prosperous, and free future we need to create the most productive, most creative, most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear, i believe that if you set out, say, what would maximize the number of entrepreneurs in america. there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of smaller businesses created by small business? there are ways to do that. if you say, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politicians entered. so long term we are going to need budgetary reform legislation. in the last congress more than one dozen bills were introduced to establish entitlement and budget provisions. but all the legislation did was have the same old conversatio
in south asia and has testified several times before congress on issues related to india, pakistan, afghanistan, and the u.s. image abroad. she cochaired the working group and independent bipartisan working gup made up of a handful of us-based experts that published report in september 2008 and titled u.s. and pakistan, the next chapter. before joining heritage, she was a professional staff there at a senate foreign relations committee where she had a south asian portfolio for the committee chairman senator richard lugar. from 2001 to 2003, she served as the senior adviser in the state department of south asia bureau where she advised the assistant secretary on india, pakistan relations. in the late 1990s, she served with the central intelligence agency as a political analyst on sout asia. she also served as political officer to the u.s. embassies in islamabad and new delhi in the earlier 1990s. where she meritorious honor award from the state department, as well as honors from the cia for her analytical work on indo pakistani relations. most recently, she visited afghanistan in la
is to say european union, china, japan, maybe in the future brazil, india and so on -- as long as they are not on the ft a-list and the fta program is marginal, then you have the doha round centraltrality o agriculture to it is very important to poor countries and i think ranchers and farmers have the right to say their industry is more limited and restricted by foreign barriers. agriculture is 8 to 10 american exports. it's not going to grow even if there was an successful doha round. if the administration goes to the public and says we want to make a big push for doha at least as it is and for these three ftas, the public will say the president is a smart guy, i can trust him, it's got not much to do with me. and given that trade is a disadvicive and difficulty in the party, if the administration will push trade and spend political capital on it it needs to have a somewhat different agenda that will do more for america as anconomy and do more for our national security goals as a nation. and let me give, i think, three points from my paper that i would like to see.90 one is we
in hindi and nobody who's college educated in india they have a serious condition that they can't afford to treat and being able to buy a ticket and come. that would be more of a phenomenal on the most educated with one very notable exception. maybe at the border there would be people who come across the border to get medical care. there are -- and that would be another example. there are about 400,000 births to say illegal immigrants in the united states each year comprising 1 out of every 10 births in the u.s. what percentage are people who arrive pregnant, women who cross the border or overstay a visa pregnant. it could be a large number, 20,000 and it could cost taxpayers millions and it certainly does but it's hard to get a handle on how big is that is potentially but as robert pointed out, that if you don't verify which is what this new bill considers, that could grow much larger than whatever it is now. >> i would consider the precedent for medical tourism to be quite strong indeed because we've already done this once as a nation or something very similar. in the 1980s and 1990s,
that these people have access in how the world is governed and what opportunities young people have been india, brazil and developmentally 30 years ago with more anbar but they know in the arab world they have slipped further and further behind. the desire to join the rest of the world as part of a global trend is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. other questions or comments? >> originally i am from somalia. the last two months i have had a glimmer of hope one of these was the center for training of human rights event of. we have just launched and i found an activist double feature from bahrain particularly. and women with the traditional attire and some of them went to the trainings but they point* out the difference but together [inaudible] one person from doha was not that much educated but taking a real issue in his country at one point* they said he should be removed from the meeting. so i am thinking that the possibility of the incite with some newspapers the other is the establishment is part of the commission for human rights. where independent people come together maybe this is the
opportunities young people have in india, brazil and all these other countries that developmentally 30 years ago were on par with the countries there. but they know in the arab world they slipped farther and farther behind. so this desire to join the rest of the world and be part of this global trend, i think, is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there's one here and then one in the back. >> i'm from east africa. originally i'm from somalia. i just want to share with you, which has given me some glimpse of hope in the subregion we were talking about. one was the launch of the arab -- what do you call the office for -- center for the training of human rights in doha with the office of the head commission for human rights. and the ceremony which i attended i found an activist and i hope -- i'm not saying -- the circle will feature activists from doha, from kuwait, from bahrain particularly and women again with their traditional attire and some of them coming and speaking outñk frequently because it's largely focus on government and they went to training. b
, can you start a company in china today? increasingly you can. a company in india and america better wake up to that fact. they better wake up to the fact that other systems that regulate more, that pay for education and has more efficient healthcare systems are going to start becoming much more competitive economically than we are. and we better start taking care of ourselves. and i'm not going to become an idealog that the only answer -- i always remember this line from sinatra. it's a powerful line. sir, take your hand off that broad. we're in las vegas. i can say. >> what happens here stays here. >> we better take care of ourselves. i'm not going to come up and use lebron james as an example or ethiopia and tell you changed the numbers. i'm going to tell you we better get some balance in america and we lost that and the consequence of losing that has been severe economic cataclysm. who brought up the soviet union? the soviet union, please, charles. let's not -- let's not jump from one extreme to the other. i'm not talking about the soviet union. but we need some balance here. we
with china and india, that we'll be able to understand that american workers deserve better, and that this is about the beginning of the inclusion of all workers into that economy and all people and communities that deserve to be uplifted, that this will not be an uplifting of yachts, but an uplifting of boats. today is the sound and smell of sweet jus cities. finish pleasure -- justice. >> [inaudible] >> we're doing this together. let me first say that the green the block campaign is not just a campaign, it's a coalition. and so there are already a number of organizations that have signed on to it, so it's not just the hip-hop caucus or green for all doing this alone. how we're going to do this, as i said before, this is not a green jobs moment, it's a clean energy movement, and for us we have to convince our generation that this truly is our lunch counter moment for the 21st century. and we have to go out there and convince them that if we don't make a change now, nine years into the 21st century, there will not be a 22nd century. the time is now. and so with a sense of ur
and china, india and age of the most in escaping poverty even if it meant greater hardship to the middle class, the u.s. and europe. but if you look past nationality, what is wrong with helping the poorest in the world first? finally, always hold last is an explanation of the situation you don't completely understand an accusation that those who participated in our cost the crisis were somehow irrational or even stupid. i work with these folks on wall street for ten years and i can promise you there are many things-- they are many things that they are not stupid. similarily to blame the crisis on wall street by calling wall streeters greedy to me seems to miss the point. greed is what wall street does and has always done. there is no wall street without greed. why else would someone watch his life disappear as he watched a 19-inch computer screen only to grab a morsel or crumb of profit in try to get rich off of it. greed his been in our genes for hundreds of thousands of years. the genes have not mutated so they in the last 30 years to make is more greedy. and to those behavioral econom
mobile launchers on the landma landmass. and then of course we had i-india, just a few weeks ago india launched its first submarine that has a capability so they can launch missile. they're not as potent as russia and china and the united states, but nonetheless. this is a trend. and i think what we're thinking nuclear posture review and what it is, we would like to shape, the kind of nuclear relationship we would try to influence for the future, i don't think it is in our interest to advocate a posture where countries have nuclear weapons floating around in the oceans, hiding. there hard to verify. hard-to-find. they can sneak up on you, etc. etc. this is a bad posture it seems to me. we're trying to take the dynamic out of the plan, etc. so those are my angles to the submarine issue. but we're advocating phasing them out. and focusing our posture on a land-based posture. also where you have -- ever since the cold where what we have been doing is we have been pulling our nuclear weapons in. they used to be deployed all over the world. we have been pulling them back to the country and
trade, which is to say europe, china, japan, maybe in the future brazil, india and so on, as long as they are not on this fta list and the ogrin is marginal. then you have the doha round. centrality of agriculture to it is very important to poor countries and i think american farm -- farmers and ranchers have a good case to say that their industry is more restricted and more limited by foreign trade barriers than any other. agriculture is about eight or 10% of american exports which is not going to go even if there is a big and successful doha round. so i think if the administration goes to the public and says we want to make a big push for doha at least as it is and for these fta is the public will say the president is a smart guy, i kind of trust in. not got much to do with me. and given that trade is a difficult issue within the democratic party, i think of the administration is going to make a big push for trade, and spend political capital on it, it needs to have a somewhat different agenda that will do more for america as an economy and do more for our national security goal
, india and russia they have about 3 million people. and if the only educated 10% of their kids, only 10% that would give about the same as our population if we had educated everyone to a high level. let's just say we educate only 25% which is high right now. if we educated 25% but would just give 7million people. so, when you look up the global, a, you hav a poll of 375 million people. and then you have costs of living standard of living is based on and if people aren't really pushing for these global jobs who is going to gethem? so if our kids can't be adaptable, flexible, smarter, more innovativ it's going to have all lot to say about where we are going to be as a nation. so i use this as a backdrop to talk about what and visiting all of these countries over the past years that i have had an opportunity to visit, 23 of them inurope, australia, new aland and asia and some of them i have been anywhere from four to eight times and i look around with some people he been with me on some of these trips and what we try to do and understand i think is very important, and what does it take to
sweetheart and i will be going on a journey in november to vietnam and india and sri lanka because i want to among other things come and get more of an understanding of how we can start to feed more people and make them more healthy so that when you do coded visit them you are not looking a lot of the impoverished people. you were looking at people who could look back at you and say, what is it? so i have been very interested in this organization called heifer international. >> host: heifer? >> guest: heifer da capo. they have come up with an incredible thing in a catalog, the most important catalog he will ever receive and it is because you can order water buffalo, the cows, chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, all kinds of animals and you can arrange for them to be sent to people who don't have them, and then someone will go to them and teach them how to take care of them, how to get milk and make cheese and how to sell your profit and then, when your animal has a child, whatever, a calf or a pig, then you give that to your neighbor, give that to somebody else in the community. i am deeply c
gandhi in india, he would have gotten nowhere if it hadn't been the soviet union looming in the background and it seems me until we reach a point in which poor people are organized and willing to struggle against the wall street capitalists, we're going to continue to see a roll-back of all the gains of the civil rights and the labor movement. i was hoping you'd comment. >> host: thank you shaun from washington state. >> guest: shaun, i don't think we're in any danger of seeing a roll-back of the civil rights movement. the civil rights movement have transformed america. we have other groups from american indians to latinos, gay rights groups, children's rights groups who have emulated the very legal strategy that thurgood marshall used to transform the laws of america and allow for equality and inclusion. i think what you're talking about is more on an economic basis and the increasing class stratification that we see in the united states today. and i'm reminded -- i remember sitting with thurgood marshall and saying to him, you know, if you were a young man today, going
in algeria and india. in algeria the russians and sold them 29 and had to take him back because they were defective and then they gave them to their own forces. [laughter] the next time you fly, and you have been aboard. [laughter] and indigent if you follow the indian discussion, i mean, this incredible story of the admiral is a fiasco of cosmic proportions and the russians are embarrassed. it turns out a lot of the 29 states sold also were defective in some respects or others and people in the indian government has en complaining several years now the russians are selling them junk. the rubber is going to meet the road when the iian government puts up 126th fighter planes. fighter planes are what made the russian defenseonnection to indy 500. if they lose the contract they are in a dangerous position economically. so, yes they are selling weapons to the southeast asians and they obviously want to diversify for an exposure for reaso obvious to everybody but the fact of the matter is russia cannot compete and it is their own fault as we discussed earlier. next question over here. >> secon
